Description
“A fascinating look at how scientists are working to help doctors treat the aging process itself, helping us all to lead longer, healthier lives.” —Sanjay Gupta, MD

Aging—not cancer, not heart disease—is the underlying cause of most human death and suffering. The same cascade of biological changes that renders us wrinkled and gray also opens the door to dementia and disease. We work furiously to conquer each individual disease, but we never think to ask: Is aging itself necessary? Nature tells us it is not: there are tortoises and salamanders who are spry into old age and whose risk of dying is the same no matter how old they are, a phenomenon known as “biological immortality.” In Ageless, Andrew Steelecharts the astounding progress science has made in recent years to secure the same for humans: to help us become old without getting frail, to live longer without ill health or disease.

“A fascinating look at how scientists are working to help doctors treat the aging process itself, helping us all to lead longer, healthier lives.” —Sanjay Gupta, MD

Aging—not cancer, not heart disease—is the underlying cause of most human death and suffering. The same cascade of biological changes that renders us wrinkled and gray also opens the door to dementia and disease. We work furiously to conquer each individual disease, but we never think to ask: Is aging itself necessary? Nature tells us it is not: there are tortoises and salamanders who are spry into old age and whose risk of dying is the same no matter how old they are, a phenomenon known as “biological immortality.” In Ageless, Andrew Steelecharts the astounding progress science has made in recent years to secure the same for humans: to help us become old without getting frail, to live longer without ill health or disease.
reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Author and narrator Andrew Steele is a specialist in the "new science of getting older without getting old." No one dies of old age, Dr. Steele argues, and as we reduce the underlying causes of death, we increase average longevity. Putting aside the question of where we'll put all these additional old folks, Steele offers a fascinating survey of contemporary medicine and the research on longevity in animals and humans. Although Steele is a television personality in Britain, as the audiobook's narrator, his delivery strikes the American ear as too rapid, and he runs words together. While his voice may lack charm and accessibility, the topic of longevity is fascinating. D.A.W. � AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
